control (QC) is an integral component of a digital imaging initiative to
ensure that quality expectations have been met. It encompasses procedures
and techniques to verify the quality, accuracy, and consistency of digital
products. Quality control strategies can be implemented at different levels:
A subset of documents (to be converted in-house or by a service provider)
is used to verify the appropriateness of technical decisions made during
benchmarking. This evaluation occurs prior to implementing the project.
The same quality assurance process used to confirm benchmarking decisions
can be scaled and extended to the whole collection to ensure quality
throughout the digital imaging initiative.
